I don't expect JMU to participate in the baseball tournament anyway this year because our team is a train wreck and only the top 6 seeds play in the tournament.

Note: Today's game with Liberty was canceled. 05-stirthepot

Not sure why they canceled it so early. The field id turf and it stopped raining a while ago.

I assume the Sun Belt or any other conference that really wanted JMU would be fine waiting until then for an announcement.

Yea, I don't see any announcement coming until mid-May. The fact that the Sun Belt hasn't moved forward with other options means one of three things

1) JMU really will take the bid and is just waiting for the end of the CAA schedule
2) JMU has not turned down the bid from the Sun Belt and is still evaluating (JMU is really good at that) while begging the MAC to take them (which is a very dangerous game for JMU if they really want FBS)
3) JMU has a bid from the MAC and is awaiting the end of the CAA schedule to notify the CAA and the Sun Belt (I'd be surprised if the MAC kicked out UMass to take JMU as a 13th of 13th member)
4) There is no consensus to add Liberty (possible even if JMU turns the Belt down)

When does baseball and softball end?

1) JMU really will take the bid and is just waiting for the end of the CAA schedule


This.

If JMU isn't announcing its commitment to FBS and accepting a SBC invite by June 1, they staying FCS for a long, long time.

Neither the Big South nor the MVC are anywhere near as petty as the CAA is regarding departing members. Actually no one is as petty as the CAA. So if the bid group is not going to include JMU, there's no reason to keep it under wraps any longer.

So by May 15th or so, if there's no press conference scheduled and no BOV meeting scheduled, we can probably just move on I suppose.

Does anyone know when the Sun Belt's meetings are this year? I believe they were May 21-23 last year so I assume it'll be around the same time. I have to believe that an actual vote on a new member will take place then.

They meet generally at some resort on the Redneck Riveria the week leading into the Memorial Day holiday.

I think VCU announced its move from the CAA to the A-10 like three or four weeks before the move took place. The announcement came and next thing I know within what seemed like days not weeks I'm seeing VCU field hockey and soccer schedule posters around Richmond with the A10 logo and teams clearly displayed.
